    Neat little carbine. I guess that it was an "OP Market-Garden" pick up?

    What is it like to fire? The small cartridge must reduce the recoil, compared to larger calibre carbines which often kick a bit.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, You are 100% correct it was picked up durring Market Garden by Sgt. William H. Scarborough 82nd. Airborne Charlotte, NC.. I have shot the Dutch carbines many times and not much recoil but very loud..I have never shot this one...BILL

    These are truely neat little carbines. The few I have had the chance to examine were extremely well made. Really hard to find now, especially in this kind of great condition.
    I understand that a few of these were captued and used by the Japanese during the war, and post war some were converted to .303 British by the Indonesians. Any info on those Bill?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Johnnie, Many were captured by the Japanese in the former Dutch collonies in the South pacific.. I have seen one with a Japanese rubberized sling on it.. After the war many were converted by the Indonesian police to .303 British and had a flash hidder added to them..One of these show up at the Charlotte show a couple years ago...BILL

    The Hembrug 1917 was my first attic find whan I was young- 1986 year- but it wa a long rifle, the ammo I found with, was boxed and dated 1916 and has a stell reinforcement at one side...

    I can understand them puting a flash hider on it. As light as it is, in .303 it must be a bear to fire much like the Enfield No.5 Jungle carbine. Would love to have one too.

    Thanks,
